"In 1991, channeling his Irish farming roots, Joe Reilly fulfilled his ambition to create great wines by converting a little local potato farm in Cutchogue, NY into Reilly Cellars. Over time, Joe expanded to new varietals from a modest beginning of Riesling and Merlot. The Reilly Cellars Claret is made entirely of estate-grown grapes and is aged in 100% American oak. This traditional Bordeaux style blend features 60% Cabernet Franc and 40% Petit Verdot, adding noted spice, harmonious fruit, and a deep ruby color."
